Profile image for John Bach

John Bach

Actor

John Bach’s screen career spans more than 90 roles. His CV includes a memorably loopy cameo in Goodbye Pork Pie, and starring roles in movie The Lost Tribe (playing twin brothers), and TV shows Roche (as truck driver Mick Roche) and Duggan (as detective John Duggan). En route, Bach has worked extensively in Australia, and played everyone from bus drivers to media barons — and from robbers to Roman senators.

It's a danger to be well-known. John Bach, on how the character matters more than the actor behind it, The Listener, 18 March 1991,page 66
